lake home finder: Interest Rates for August 12, 2010 - 08/12/10 03:49 AM

And they just keep going down.............. My last VA buyer locked in at 4.25% which was an amazingly low rate, thinking that they could only go up!
I am seeing a tightening for lending, with many hopefuls being turned away because they do not meet the higher standards for lending.
